Documentary showcase, what life was like for the music artists living during the Los Angeles Heavy Metal scene in the mid and late 1980s.

On the Blu-ray Disc menus, under commentary, Nadir D'Priest (singer from London) is incorrectly referred to as "THE Nadir D'Priest."
Chuck Behler's last name is misspelled as "Beehler" in the end credits. This is not corrected on the DVD/Blu-ray.
